Ahrend 2020
Ahrend design is functional and ergonomically where form follows function and aesthetics. Some of our major furniture lines have a Cradle to Cradle® certification, where Ahrend 2020 is a great example.

The Ahrend 2020 chair consists of 100% recyclable materials, defined for the technical and biological cycle. It stores a completely new technical platform with several patents and invisible technique. The Ahrend 2020 is the new standard as regards sustainability, comfort and ergonomics.  This is why Ahrend guarantees a residual value on the chair, even after ten years of use.
